[quote="Claire"]I think it is funny that many, many years ago (like 40), Mom raised me to treat corn and peas as if they were a starch! Wouldn't the low-carb fanatics love her now!!! quote]
lol, i always view corn and peas and winter squash and potatoes and beans as starches rather than veggies, and it makes me laugh when people think they can just pile them on cause they're legumes and veggies.
'they're GOOD for you; they're VEGETABLES' or some variant of that line is what people usually say when they ask me for how to get skinny and i say to lay off of the starchy vegetables.
'yeah, they ARE good for you, but they're loaded with CALORIES,' is my typical response. :roll:
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
